bulletin 1001ray batts WildManBoogieHello folks!

First we have two very sought-after rockabillies from Mississipi by RICK RICKELS (MH Label), « I’m Gone » and « You Gonna Go Away ». Then the truck drivers’ favorite « Six Days on The Road » given a rocking treatment by PAUL DAVIS (Bulletin label), nice strong steel-guitar. Further on, classic lap-steel guitar of Clem Slumley behind the vocal of ROY ACUFF for this 1936 offering, « Freight Train Blues ». Then on to gospel with the Soul Stirrers pre-Sam Cooke – lead is R. H. HARRIS in « Walk Around » (1939). Finally we return to Hillbilly boogie with RAY BATTS and his « Wild Man Boogie » (Nashboro, 1951) – fine trombone which did inspire Sonny Burgess a couple of years later. Enjoy the music!
